If they keep their designs secret, and do not open source their equivalents of tools like the one in question, then they won't get caught, right?
    I was thinking of a situation where they all went open source, but yeah very valid, and even if they all have mutual agreements to open up it doesn't stop an outside party abusing that agreement.
